Blackbird 4K 1x2 HDMI Splitter
In a technology driven world high definition content has become the standard. If you need to simultaneously view HD content on multiple displays, you need a way to split the signal between the displays. Normally a source is connected directly to a display, but that will not work if you need to push the signal to more than one display.
These splitters are powered so besides splitting the signal, they can also be used at the end of a cable to regenerate and essentially boost the HDMI® signal. Whether your need is at home, at school, in a retail store, or in a corporate office, these plug-n-play splitters are the perfect portable solution to view HD content on multiple displays at the same time.
- Splits one HDMI 1.4 signal to two HDMI displays at the same time
- 3D content support - this splitter can automatically detect the EDID and output 3D content
- Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) Support - if supported by the source and display, users can control all devices with one remote
- Plug-n-Play technology - There is no configuration for these units; just plug them in and you are ready to go
- Small and portable - the splitters are small enough to travel with and light enough to be mounted in permanent locations

Questions and Answers
PROS: Easy to setup and use
Great picture sent to both devices
CONS: Causes HDMI connection to be unidirectional
Sound may not carry to second device in some circumstances
PROS: Inexpensive, small and compact splitter for everyday use.
CONS: Handshake issues as outlined above need complete synced between devices.
There are a lot of HDMI splitter products to choose from but this one seemed to be as good as any. I can't speak to bidirectional or audio functionality, as I use neither in my setup but for what I need it to do, it works great.
In my book, if I don't even realize it's there, it's doing its job. Within a day after installing, I forgot I even had this device handling my video.
PROS: Produces a clean signal across a 15' HDMI + 35' HDMI run
Super compact - it's about the size of a deck of cards
Low power consumption - can run all the time with essentially no impact on my electricity bill
CONS: When initially handshaking with my TV or projector, there is a quick flash of static on the screen but it doesn't bother me.
I have it connected from the PS4 to the splitter, then from there it goes to the surround sound and TV
If the surround sound is turned on before the TV, the audio doesn't work and I have to turn off and back on the surround sound to get it working. Was previously using a older monoprice hdmi splitter from 4 years ago that didn't have this issue. Not detrimental, but definitely annoying especially if others don't know what to do.
It might work perfectly if I was going to 2 TVs. I don't have 4k to test that part, but hopefully it works. Haven't tested how it affects input lag, but it seems at least as good as my previous one I swapped it out for.
PROS: 4k, when it works it works well, very small
CONS: audio issues as described

PROS: It's small and works great.
Picture and response times have been great in both rooms.
PROS: Easy to set up
Working without issue
A few days ago, I reviewed with a 4 star rating (hasn't appeared yet), saying it works, but with quirks. However, upon experimentation switching it out from a previous Monoprice 8402 (that worked fine for years) on a different 2 TV setup, there are no "quirks". Apparently, there is something inherent with the output from a DirecTV Genie client box that showed some quirks when switching channels on two Insignia TV's. The above mentioned Monoprice 8402 shows the same quirks on this setup. Nothing wrong with either splitter. Never had a problem with a Monoprice product.
PROS: Works great. Now, when I eventually switch to 4K TV's, I'll have a splitter than can handle it.
It was easy, easy to install and works perfectly. We love it.
PROS: EASY TO INSTALL
PROS: Nice and compact, easy to set up.
CONS: Information was lacking to indicate this product (or any similar product) could not be used when an output was being directed to a home theater amp. Was suggested by product support that this was 'common knowledge'.
